All at Cards For Good Causes
In December 2012 my husband and I were staying in London, visiting our daughter and seeing the sights. Opposite our hotel was a fine old church and attached to the railings was a banner with the words ‘Cards For Good Causes’ on it. Intrigued, I went inside and was delighted to find a wonderful display of colourful, high quality Christmas cards, plus wrapping paper, gift tags and other Christmas items, all being sold on behalf of well-known national charities. As I bought some cards I thought to myself ‘What a brilliant idea – all those charities’ cards together in one place! Wouldn’t it be great if we could have something similar in Stoke on Trent?’ Back at the hotel, my husband agreed.
So when we got home I phoned the Cards For Good Causes Head Office and spoke to a nice lady about the possibility of selling the charity Christmas cards in our area of North Staffordshire. She was very positive and encouraging, and then asked whe
Cards for Good Causes sold more than £4 million worth of Christmas cards in 2018, passing back at least 74p of every pound to its 250+ partner charities. It is thanks to the marvellous help from supporters that this staggering amount for UK charities has been raised.
But Cards for Good Causes is not just here at Christmas. With the continual help from supporters, much needed funds for UK charities can be raised all year round. It is really simple and doesn't cost any extra pennies.
This year, Cards for Good Causes customers can choose from a range of charities that support ex-service men and women. Online charity partners include ABF - The Soldier's Charity, Help for Heroes and SSAFA.
Lewes-based artist Lyndsey Smith’s colourful depictions of Sussex scenes have become very popular as Christmas cards to raise money for local charity SASBAH (the Sussex Association for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus). This festive season more of her designs than ever before will be on sale through Cards for Good Causes.
The humorous way in which Lyndsey adds well-known Sussex characters into her watercolour paintings has become a trademark of her style. Celebrities and historical figures associated with Lewes feature on one card of skaters on Pells Pool in Lewes. So Raymond Briggs and his Snowman, Marilyn Monroe (rumoured to have had lunch at the Shelley’s Hotel), actor Mark Williams, Ann of Cleves, Guy Fawkes and others mingle on the frozen pool. Other iconic scenes include skating at Brighton Pavilion, a Christmas swim on Eastbourne seafront, Castle Gate in
The Military Wives Choirs, led by Musical Director Brooke Morgan, gave a wonderful performance at the official launch of the Cards for Good Causes shopping season on Friday 12 October at Holy Trinity church, Sloane Square, London. Singing a range of pieces from their new album, Remember, the choir really set the tone for an exciting and successful season ahead. Representatives from member and guest charities, shop hosts and suppliers, were all on hand to view the 2018 card stock and to help launch the season with a flourish.
Cards for Good Causes is looking for shop managers to run its charity Christmas pop-up shops in locations across the UK.
Dumfries is one of the locations where a shop manager is needed this festive season so that local and national charities don't lose out on thousands of pounds.
The organisation, which runs the largest network of charity Christmas card shops across the UK, has had a presence in Dumfries for many years, but that is threatened without a manager to run the shop.
Vicky Monaghan, Regional Manager for Cards for Good Causes comments:
“We are desperately seeking someone to help us in this temporary role in the run up to Christmas. Without a manager, we are in danger of not opening our Dumfries shop at all this year, meaning charities would miss out on thousands of pounds. This temporary role is fun and rewarding, and could be great experience, so please get in touch if you are interesting in helping us support some great charities.”
